Join Instructor Helen Shafer Garcia for a special two-day workshop exploring shapes, textures, and mark making with a biomorphic edge.  You’ll learn that this paper process will allow you to transform the surface into a variety of crinkled textures, building layers of color and cloth upon paper.  Paint and ink will flow into the crevices giving the papers a wonderful, aged look.  Explore this special watermedia batik like technique on Masa rice paper. Helen guides you to use an acrylic ink technique to make marks and paint with watercolor, letting the colors blend and fuse together naturally. Animal and plant imagery and symbolism will be the focus.  Marks will be made with water-soluble oil pastels in addition to translucent paper layers and fabric raw edges. Detail with colored pencils, ink lines, adornments, and collage elements to embellish the shapes. And to complete the remnant look, you’ll add sari ribbons to embellish the edges, giving the quilt a delightful, aged look.

Supply Fee: Please note there is an additional $15 (cash only) supply fee due at class for: special papers, collage, sari ribbons, fabric scraps,  embroidery threads, use of acrylic inks, stamps, ink pads, and pastels.
